The Fashion Police would respectfully like to ask The Duchess of Cambridge to please stop buying her clothes in Zara: we’re convinced she’s at least one of the reasons their clothes are currently selling for astronomical prices on eBay, and we’d quite like that to stop now, thanks very much. This dress, for instance, is already sold out, but whether that’s because of the Kate Effect or not, we will never know.
With that said, here’s Kate Middelton, always appropriate, causing a few raised eyebrows in royal circles: not because her dress is from the high street (everyone’s used to that by now, presumably) but because it’s has – SHOCKHORROR – a higher hemline than usual.
The Duchess is known for her usually conservative clothing choices, which tend to include skirts and dresses which hit either on the knee or just above. This one, worn to watch Garry Barlow in concert, is mid-thigh length, but given that Kate seems to have the ability to make almost anything look conservative, we probably wouldn’t have noticed if it hadn’t been pointed out to us.
What do you think of this latest outfit?
